Evan Edwards

Evan Edwards is a doctoral student in the philosophy program at DePaul University, where he is working on a dissertation on Walt Whitman’s understanding of the ways poetry can attune the body to recognize and evaluate the social and natural world. His research interests include early German Romanticism, Marxian/Marxist political economy, American Transcendentalism, the reception of Hegel in America, and, more broadly speaking, the influence of nineteenth-century German philosophy on American thought and “common sense.”
